Pocket Science Festival to start and end tour in Brighton

Posted On 16 Aug 2016 at 2:48 pm

The Pocket Science Festival starts its summer tour in Brighton today (Tuesday 16 August) with hands on activities aimed at 7 to 13 year olds.

The first and last dates on the tour take place in Brighton with a funfair feel to the educational roadshow.

The organisers said: “It looks like a funfair. It is a funfair! But each of the attractions has a bit of science to enthral and enthuse young minds.

“It’s a two-man science mission to spark children’s curiosity with fun and interactive workshops and talks.

“With a wealth of hands-on activities, this self-contained education roadshow has been roaming Sussex and beyond for the last ten years – fostering learning and co-operation while inspiring young people with the everyday wonders of science.

“The ever-growing line-up is packed with a whole host of new tricks, demonstrations and games – brand new additions include zipwire seagull bombing and the opportunity to grow several times your original size or shrink to the size of a pin – alongside old favourites such as the Heath Robinson inspired contraption, the Incredible Machine.

“Created by science magicians Richard Robinson (Director of Brighton Science Festival) and Jonathan Hare (from BBC’s Rough Science), it’s a fantastic afternoon out for the whole family.”

Anyone who misses today’s free session at St Andrew’s Church, in Hillside, Moulsecoomb, from 11am to 4pm can join in the fun I just over a fortnight.

The tour returns to Brighton for its grand finale at the Synergy Centre, in West Street, Brighton, on Saturday 3 September also from 11am to 4pm and also free.
